Permission to upload to my own FTP account denied?

I am attempting to put a site on the web and when i try to upload files, either via CuteFTP or the in-built FTP browser in Mac OSX 10.4.4, i recieve an error message. In CuteFTP it reads :"550 index.html: Permission denied" when i try to upload index.html. and in mac os x it just says i do not have sufficient privilages. Any ideas?

Are you uploading to your www or ccgi webspace. If ccgi. what are the permissions for the file you are trying to access and upload. You can find this out in most ftp clients or if its to the ccgi. you can login to the cshell and find out.

Are you putting them into the htdocs folder? If not, that is why you are getting an error because writing to the folder htdocs is in is not allowed.
